Kia ora e te whānau

I hope you had a restful break and the term has been off to a good start for you and your whānau. I have a few key messages to share as we head into Term 3.

Masks at School
Our school’s stance on Mask Wearing remains for all visitors and whānau (who are not Raglan Area School students or staff members) to wear masks when inside any of our school classrooms and facilities.  I respectfully request your support with mask-wearing, and believe that this will assist us to prevent a number of winter flu bugs (including COVID) from being spread.  If your children choose to wear masks we can provide them at the office.

Just a reminder that if you have any issues regarding your child please contact their teacher in the first instance, you can do this by email or leave a message with the office for them to contact you. Our teachers’ email addresses are here (LINK). 
If you would like to discuss something with a more senior member of staff please contact the relevant deputy principal in your area. For Kura Teina this is For Kura Tuakana this is or contact either of them via the office. I am, of course, also available should you need me, contact me via Jules in the  school office 07 825 8140.
School Telephone Lines
We have had one phone line restored but we are still awaiting our other lines being repaired.  This means that if one line is in use it is not possible to get through. We apologise for the ongoing inconvenience of this, Chorus are still working on repairing the issue. If you are not able to get through to us by phone you can call or text our cellphone 027 488 9421, email or for attendance email
